100 Mile House a pleasant surprise

Apparently they reconfigured a typewriter to make cool music.

I did catch a  pleasant surprise though — 100 Mile House.  The Edmonton folk rock group featuring Peter Stone on vocals and guitar and his wife Denise MacKay on vocals, guitar and snare drum and Scott Zubot on violin eased into their set with a solo acoustic song and  quickly picked up the tempo with some peppy violin and very pleasant vocal harmonies backed by stand up bass from Tom Murray and Ty Armstrong keeping the beat going on drums.
